The scooterists are back in town this weekend and it’s going to get loud!

The town’s pubs and clubs will get right into the spirit of things putting on live entertainment for our moped-loving visitors and other fans of ska, soul, punk, New Wave and mod.

The official welcome night for the event, billed by organisers VFM as ‘The Great North West Scooter Rally’ and one of the major weekends on the scooter community’s calendar, is at the Ranch House Bar on Friday (March 21) where DJs will play from 8pm to 2am.

The Boardwalk bar just along the seafront is also welcoming scooterists over the weekend with DJs Tony Crookes and Paul Johnson playing the best in Northern Soul, Motown, R&B, 1960s and mod sounds on the top floor at the former Upstairs Downstairs on Saturday. Admission is free.

Both the Ranch and Boardwalk will be playing ‘scooter sounds’ throughout the weekend.

On Saturday afternoon The Winter Gardens will open for a scooter jumble and parts fair. Clothing and records will also be on sale. 11am to 4pm.

The main event is at The Platform on Saturday night (March 22) from 8pm to 2am.
